ConcreteSouth: A Culture of Safety

It’s no secret that construction jobsites and heavy manufacturing operations are busy places where potential safety hazards often lurk around every corner. That's why ConcreteSouth instituted and follows a safety culture that permeates every corner of its member companies 24 hours a day, seven days a week
Creating an environment where workers, contractors, and customers know that they are safe is a focal point for all companies that make up Concrete South. With corporate social responsibility playing a large role in our overall mission, we put safety first on a 24/7 basis. “Safety is a global initiative across our entire footprint,” says ConcreteSouth’s Spencer Weitman. “By making safety a priority, we’ve shown that we’re committed to minimizing lost-time accidents, workers’ compensation claims, and other safety-related issues.”
